    It did with the final total of $6,364,229.

    I dropped my bid and got the Blu-ray set from the add-on site. I end up spending the same amount and get physical copies of the new episodes. I can get the mug and t-shirt later. The add-on page should still be open for a while.

    They been in preproduction for months, they show updates on Kickstarter. First they had to pick the movies they wanted. Then they had to get the rights to those movies. Then they had to find time in everyone's schedules to film and get the contracts signed. Then they had to make and build new sets(old ones are long gone) Design new and old robots. Then they had to get the writers to watch and riff the movies. Start planning bits and so on. Takes time. They just signed some more of the old cast, so they have to be worked into the story. They only recently even signed with Netflix, they have been shopping around to get a studio to distribute them. The song writer of frozen is writing a song for them. Plus many celebrities that want to make cameos.Then there are all the kickstarter rewards they have to make and send out....Basically there is a lot to do.

    They will probably start filming by the end of the year, and we will see the new series some time next year.

    If you're a backer you would know that production began months ago.

    If not just thank everyone that made this happen on our dime and patiently wait.
